MusicDNA (file format)
The format is backwards-compatible with existing MP3 players, and offers the same sound quality. MusicDNA files can contain metadata, such as lyrics, artwork, blog posts and user-created content, which can be updated continually via the internet. MusicDNA is intended to be a competitor to Apple's iTunes LP, which also offers user-added content.
As of January 2010[update], no major record labels have adopted the new format, although a number of independent labels have shown an interest. MusicDNA files are likely to be more expensive than current music downloads.
